Who would you be?

A bit of fun, no serious answers please. I'm quite happy in my own skin, I've known who I am for a long time now & am more than happy with myself. Yes I could be a tad slimmer, if only to fit into some of my old clothes & the coat Mike bought me several years back thinking I was a size 8!

Anyway who would you be if you had the chance, I adore watching old comedy's & Last of the Summer Wine is a particular favourite!

If I could spend the day as anyone it would be Edie Pegden


I never learnt to drive, I did start many, many moons ago but never got round to taking my driving lesson. Mike has threatened several times to buy me a car & book me some lessons. However being the completely unpractical person I am I respond with ' But you know I like nice classic cars darling!'

Anyway whenever Last of the Summer Wine is on the TV there is great hilarity all round when Mike points out to the kids, 'if your mother ever learns to drive, she would be like Edie', I strongly suspect he is right too!

So come on, who would you like to be, fun answers only -

  1. Oh gosh, I can't think of anyone I'd like to be Jo, it's bad enough being myself without thinking of the risks involved in turning into someone else … … but hey, if I had the chance I would like to ask for a few more years added on so I can keep crafting and catching up on my long list of projects.
    We get 'Last of the Summer Wine' replays in the afternoons here and they are a funny lot aren't they. xoJoy

    1. That's a shame Joy in all honesty I want to live until I am really old. Perhaps that's why I want to be Edie for the day! I adore Last of the Summer Wine it is one of my very favourites.

  2. I can't think of a specific person, but someone a bit batty! Probably not Nora Batty though, what about Hyacinth Bucket! I probably have Hyacinth tendencies!!! Certainly someone eccentric that is sure. xx

    1. Ha ha, love the you being Hyacinth, I hope you don't have a neighbour like Liz to bully!

    2. No, I would definitely never do anything like that, can you imagine how horrible that would be. Just the crazy eccentric bits like the worrying about everything at home being in just the right place and so on! xx

  3. There's probably quite a few people my lot would liken me to such as Joyce Grenfell when she says 'Oh George don't do that' or possibly Hilda Baker 'must get a little hand for this watch'. God I am showing my age now aren't I. But who would I like to of been is a real toughy maybe Joanna Lumley if you can still look that good when you have your bus pass that would do for me but as I am only the size of a pigmy and the waste line has somewhat expanded since I had my fourth child and never gone back although eating the crisps and biscuits probably doesn't help I don't think I am ever likely to look as good as her but I can dream can't I and I have a few years left before I get my bus pass.

    1. Ha ha, the old ones are the best. I'm short too Mitzi, you would have to stretch both of us out together to be as tall as Joanna Lumley!

    1. If you get the chance to watch an episode especially the older ones I'm sure you would like it. Very old English humour! Have a fab week Nicole.

  5. Not that I'd like to be him, but my family insist that I'm like Victor Meldrew from One Foot In The Grave because of the amount of moaning I do. Oh well, I wouldn't have to moan if they'd all do the things I asked them to do, would I?

    1. Te he. You are quite right Jo, if they did everything that was asked of them, you would have no need to moan!

  6. I haven't seen this show but I often think I'd be a lot like Geraldine Granger, the Vicar of Dibley. I love that show so much. I'd say it's my favorite TV export from your country. :)

    1. I like the Vicar of Dibley too, they are my sort of TV shows! I'm sure everyone who watched the episode when she stuck her head under the chocolate fountain would have loved to have done the same!

  7. I am very happy being me but sometimes, just sometimes I would quite like to be Abbie in NCIS. I love the characters attitude and dress. Those boots with my big feet Ooh Er.

    1. Sometimes it is nice to spend the odd hour dreaming of who to be. I'm quite a gentle person when at home but in work I have to be quite fierce & scary! I now need to find out who this Abbie is so I can picture you as her

    1. How interesting Laura Croft. I would love to see your version of a blinged up Land rover! I would have the land not the mansion though, too much housework.

  10. Amy here mentioned Hyacinth Bucket, I loved this tv show when it was airing in Polish TV year ago. Watching it, I always loved Hyacinth but I wished to never be like her :)

    But hm, who I'd like to be? Dana Scully from X-files, because David Duchowny was so handsome playing there, so I'd really like to be his partner :D
